27th February 2020
My penultimate day in London; sky grey, wind bitter, prices high and queues at the British Museum, prohibitively long.
I left east London around 9.00 am and took the Tube straight to Holborn and from there, walked the ten minutes up to the Museum, pausing only to take these snaps:
Japanese … ?
Mexican … ?
Chinese … ?
One of my favourite Korean restaurants. I ordered seafood bibimbap with flying fish eggs.
And a final walk around central London. Above what used to be a great cinema bookshop near The Museum …
It ends for me where it began for Dickens; his first success, the ‘Sketches by Boz’. The following day, I had some final business to take care of, and then try to rest. Tuesday was the big flight back to Asia … but that is another blog.
